No expectations

I used to live a life where judgment played a role at times, as well as comparing myself to others constantly, and trying to live up to some kind of standard. There was always trying to be the best that I could be, based on what I had learned and observed from others. There was a following of expectations based on what everyone else was doing and how my life was supposed to look. This is completely gone, and the memory of that is a way of life that fills me with compassion for others.

By gaining familiarity with the natural presence of who you are, and understanding that points of view are completely empty and have no substance, there is a full-blown recognition of your true identity, and the true identity of everyone else. You are filled with complete perfection and complete love and warmth at all times, no matter what is going on, or how you are feeling in each moment. It is simply a misperception that thoughts, emotions, and experiences make up a solid you, and that you have to fix yourself or make "you" better somehow. The joy is in the recogonition that "you" are already fundamentally perfect! Just as the sky is wide open and free of any division, so too is the vast natural presence of your true nature.
